The Complete Remote Work Guide: All You Need to Know to Get Hired

The History of Remote Work

Let’s start from the beginning. If remote work seems like some space aged concept to you that’s only been brought about by the rise of the internet, it’s not. In fact, working from home is what people did through most of history. It’s only since the rise of the industrial revolution in 1760 that it became the norm for people to report to work in a building each day. Throughout most of history people worked as tradesmen or farmers, often working from home. Ancient greeks for instance had professions such as potter or carpenter which would work from home offices and had the opportunity to be near their families. People are naturally wired to work at home, close to their families. And even after the industrial revolution, many Americans were work from home farmers.

Going into an office to work was the thing to do in the 1920’s – the 2000’s. And many people coming of age in those time periods have the in office model as the only world they know. But there’s a coming change. Advances in technology are helping the future shift back to a work from home world. Continue Reading “The Complete Remote Work Guide: All You Need to Know to Get Hired”

Why Covid-19 Will Accelerate the Growth of Remote Work

Covid-19 will have many lasting effects on the world.  The novel coronavirus disease will be integrated into society and some people will get it each year, much like the flu we are so used to each winter.  It has also ravaged small businesses without having the same effect on larger companies that have deeper pockets to help weather the cashflow storm.  The effects of Covid-19 will truly run deep.

But one type of company did not have its operations affected.  While many scramble to adjust to quarantine orders, companies which were already fully remote like Automattic, makers of WordPress, TodoistWerkington and others quietly maintained business as usual without interruption.  They already have the policies and procedures in place for quarantine.  Continue Reading “Why Covid-19 Will Accelerate the Growth of Remote Work”
